Re: what do yall think of this deal

Low mileage and no rust. If everything works and the clutch is good I would offer 4500. Worst he can say is no or come back with a counter offer. It has TTB D50 in the front. Look that over real good as it gets expensive quick if it has been neglected to fix it all. < Negotiating point.

Re: what do yall think of this deal

Honestly id be all over that if it runs good, I would check the turbo fins by pulling off the intake boot. Also check the shaft for play.

Re: what do yall think of this deal

one thing that concerned me is that the flywheel isn't covered, how can you tell if it is damaged?

Re: what do yall think of this deal

Just crawl under and check it over good and make sure the teeth look alright. Mine hasn't had a dust cover in quit awhile an its fine, so really not a huge deal in my opinion.

1996 F250 I solded it

2008 lifted duramax dually
